5 Color Psychology Facts To Know Before Designing Your New House

Nothing can be more exciting than designing your new house. It is a place you are going to make your home. You will make memories here, and that’s why everything has to be perfect. But designing your house can be a tricky business. In an effort to make everything picture perfect, though, you might overdo it.

The biggest mistake people make while designing and decorating their new place is not researching before making a decision. In their excitement, they might choose an unsuitable color for the TV lounge and mess up the vibe of the room.

Here are five color psychology facts to keep you from making any rash decisions regarding your new house’s design:

1. Colors Can Relieve Stress:

Unlike most of the psychology facts you read on the internet, this one is true. Many colors work as great stress relievers. Whether you have a stress-inducing job or you suffer from constant anxiety, choosing a relaxing color for your room can help you a lot. Lavender, Pale Gray, Aqua Blue, Gray Blue, and Beige are the most common stress relieving colors. These colors make you calm and are perfect to come home to after a long day. You can also paint your work area at home in one of these relaxing colors. You have plenty of colors to choose from, and you can go with the one that complements your furniture and adds to the beauty of the whole room.

2. Colors Can Make Your Room Look Bigger:

Have you gotten more furniture for your living room than you can fit in it comfortably or does the guest room look too small after putting in the bed? Too much furniture and too little space can make a room look confining, and people might not feel comfortable in that room. The solution lies in colors. Light colors reflect the most light, and that’s why rooms with light colors look big. TV lounges painted in all white with white furniture and white lights look so good because they give the illusion of extra space. You can use soft-tones of green, off-white, or blue to make your room look bigger. Add a few LED lights, and your room might look exactly like the pictures you see on Tumblr.

3. No Single Rule Applies to All:

Although there are many common perceptions about colors like red, for instance, signifies passion and anger and yellow is the color of optimism, it is necessary to remember that not everyone perceives colors the same way. Depending on their age and gender, a color might mean something entirely different to your father than it does to you. While designing your house, you must keep this fact in mind and not design everyone’s rooms in the colors that you think are right for them. Generally associated with calmness, Blue can represent coldness and unfriendliness to some people and might make them uncomfortable in their room. So ask your family members their preference before selecting a color for their room.

4. Colors Can Help You Study:

Yes, you read that right. Colors can improve your learning ability and help you stay attentive while studying. While designing your kids’ study room, you should go for colors like blue or moss-green. These colors will help them focus on their studies in the best way and keep their attention fixed on their books. Yellow and orange are the colors of alertness and can help students stay attentive during class, but some teachers don’t favor overstimulation and prefer calming colors over bright colors.

5. Colors Can Improve Your Social Life:

Planning on holding a lot of parties in your new house or maybe the usual get-togethers with some colleagues? Choose the right color for your party room and see people becoming a fan of your parties. Bright colors like yellow, green, and shocking pink mixed with a few neon lights can turn your room into a club. Your lively parties will help you meet new people and make new friends, all because of colors. The cool party colors and neon lights will make your room perfect for Instagram, and it will attract photography lovers to visit and take their pictures.

So now that you know the five essential facts about colors psychology, you can start designing your new house. Make sure to begin designing a few weeks before the day of your move, because these things take time and a lot of trial and error. Also, make arrangements for your move before a week of the main day, for you don’t want to be worrying about who will help you move at the last minute. Don’t forget all that you have learned about colors and use it to your advantage to make your new house beautiful and perfect.
